economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> you know, it looks like republicans are up against another wall. but they're not going to be able to get -- they're not going to be able to get, quite frankly, some things they really want, if they're serious, are important. spending issues. but this is -- he's got them again. >> here's the problem with the republican party being owned by extremists on issues not related to the debt. let me tell you something, the president of the united states, it's laughable that he would talk about republicans not being responsible on debt issues when this president has been in the white house since january the 20th, 2009, and he has yet to do anything significant on social security or medicare. he cut medicare, so he could start a new entitlement program. that's not making medicare more solvent. he hasn't done anything to curb the costs of medical expenses, which he said he was going to do. he did nothing. he struck back room

republicans to hold the economy hostage. he said we could be downgraded by the credit agencies. so what happens if the president holds that position, which there's no reason to believe he won't, and republicans hold theirs, the one you just laid out, what happens to the economy? what happens to the politics of it? >> the vast majority of economists would say that on the economic side, it could be catastrophic. we don't know. if you don't lift the debt limit, we don't know what happens with our creditors, we don't know what happens with the strength of the u.s. economy. we do know that bad things probably happen. we also assume that house republicans at the end of the day will blink on this. i just would not make that assumption. i would look back to that tax vote after christmas. three-quarters of the republican party did not go along with speaker boehner on the compromise on increasing taxes. these guys don't care what leadership has to say about this issue. they want to shrink government. they were elected to shrink government. and whether it's defaulted, whether it's shutting down th
